Here is a free online distraction free text editor that comes with typewriter sounds, version history, spell checker, and character count features. It is named as “Eddtor“. Its typewriter sounds feature is quite interesting. Apart from that, the version history feature helps to save different versions of document and then restore a particular version in just two mouse clicks. It also automatically saves whatever you type but for version history, you need to create a version manually. You can use this distraction free text editor without any sign up but then you can use only one document. To create and store multiple documents, you need to create a free account.
This free online distraction free text editor also brings other features that I like a lot. You can enable focus mode that leaves its interface with main typing area and no menus. You can also toggle light and dark modes to work comfortably, set the number of words as a target for typing, create and store multiple text documents, and edit a saved document. You can also save a document to PC as TXT file and also publish and share a document with others. Once a document is published, it is set as public and anyone with the document URL can access your document. You can also make your document private again anytime.
In the screenshot above, you can see its interface with focus mode, version history sidebar and dark theme enabled.
How To Use This Free Online Distraction Free Text Editor and Enable Typewriter Sounds, Use Version History, Etc?
It’s a very simple distraction free text editor. Use the homepage link given at the end of this review and sign up using your Facebook account or email address.
After sign up, a sample document will be in front of you. You can edit that document or create a new file using File menu. Now you can start writing.
To enable typewriter sounds, use Tools menu. The spell checker can also be enabled/disabled using this menu.
A Simplicity Analysys option is also available which analysis the text and shows suggestions for some words that can be replaced to make reading better. However, this feature is not so good as it doesn’t give good suggestions always.
Whatever you write is saved automatically but creating a version of the document is also good. For that, use File menu and click Version history option. It will open Version history sidebar on the right side. There, press Save a version now and done. This way you can save a version of your document. The list of all saved versions will be visible in that sidebar and you can select any version to restore it.
When you are done with writing, you can save the document as a text file to PC using File menu.
If you want to share your document with others, use Share menu which will help you publish the document and generate a public URL for that document.
In this way, you can use this handy distraction free writer website.
You can also access all your saved documents using Creations button available on the top right side of its interface.
After that, you can open any document for editing and also delete a document and move it to trash.
I have tried many other similar websites and software and all such tools are quite useful. Still, this online distraction free text editor is a bit special because of its typewriter sounds, version history, light and dark modes, automatic saving, and other features. You should give it a try.
